Re: Gasping for air in the night - Zantac Side Effect??
I'm not sure if there's any association with Zantac and gasping for air (I'm doubting it) but there is a link between acid reflux disease and sleep apnea. If your waking up gasping for air, you have likely quit breathing in your sleep (meaning you need a sleep study!). It could likely just seem the medication is doing it when it's not. Medications that make sleep disordered breathing worse would be things like valium, sleeping pills, and such.. But that's what it sounds like. You need to tell your doctor what's going on. Do you have persistent symptoms of fatigue or feeling like you didn't sleep when you actually did?
